Tell me if those are too hard or too easy:
1. Stravinsky's Symphony in Eb sounded a bit like the symphonies of another composer. That composer was also present at the first performance, after which he commented "Very nice". Who is it?
2. Which baroque Italian composer's music was arranged a bit by Stravinsky and which piece was the result of this?
3. Stravinsky didn't like photographers very much and used to hit them with his walking stick whenever one of those dared to approach him. Once he broke a photographer's camera as well as his fingers. True or false?
4. When Stravinsky was in Japan, he heard a piece by the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu and predicted him a great future. Which piece did Stravinsky hear?
5. Les Noces turned out to be particularly difficult to write, which is why Stravinsky took two tries until he finally got it right on the third. True or false?
6. Stravinsky wrote a piece for elephants to dance to. True or false?
7. Which was Stravinsky's first fully serial work?
8. Stravinsky once said: "His musical judgements restricted themselves to common places and were not rarely wrong." Who was he talking about?
9. For what reason was Stravinsky arrested in the US once?
10. How many symphonies has Stravinsky written (counting not only pieces for orchestra, but all pieces he called symphony)?
I have an ice cream. I cannot mail it, for it will melt.
